A must read... Feb 25, 2007
Who knew that Salvation could be found for $2.99 between the newspapers and the KK doughnuts at the Kroger? This book is one that I have now read twice and have committed to reading every Lent. Strobel provides a compelling case for Christ's resurrection. The best part is it's written in a clear, simple style that does not take away from the power of his argument. Many Christians criticize apologists like Strobel but I applaud him for speaking up on behalf of those who discredit the story of the resurrection, the main premise of Christianity. No matter where you are on your faith journey, there is something to be learned from this book. It graphically paints a vivid picture of the suffering of Jesus. With scriptures used throughout and only 3 chapters, it can be easily divided into three thought provoking Sunday School lessons leading up to Easter.
Misnamed book, and author needs to research the day of Astare. Feb 5, 2007
Lee Stroebel does a great service for humanity with many of his works, by pointing out the facts which support Scriptures. However, when he names a book "The Case for Easter" instead of "The Case for the Resurrection" he is not doing a service. As most know Easter is just another name for the pagan goddess Astare. The Savior did not rise on her day, nor did He die on the day our modern calendar calls "Good Friday." He was the Passover Lamb. He was crucified at Passover. If we want to celebrate His resurrection, instead of doing so on a day set aside to honor a pagan diety, we need to do it 3, not 2, days after Golgotha, namely 3 days and nights after Passover. Yahushua does not want us to drink of the cup of demons and His cup too. One of the things He came into the world for was to defeat paganism in all it's forms. Would you want your special days celebrated not when they really happened, but on days set aside to honor pagan "gods" (or as Paul says, actually, demons)? What's wrong with celebrating the actual days associated with Him Who gave His life for us? Why should it be that traditon is more important than the truths of the Scriptures? Stroebel tells us we need to stick with the truth. He is right. When do we stop thinking we are honoring our Savior by celebrating events of His life that do not correlate to events in HIS life, but to pagan celebrations? Something to think about.
Is is a book? Jun 9, 2006
I was expencting a book the same size as the book by Lee Strobel The Case for Christ. This is only a pocket sized book, and only exerpts from The case for Christ. I feel totally ripped off. I won't buy another book at this site.
Good in spite of somewhat misleading advertising May 10, 2006
I recommend this book with one warning - most of this book is taken from Lee Strobel's "The Case for Christ," with a few modifications. This is why I did not rate it 5 stars. I did not realize that this was the case when I bought it, and even then I didn't know until I happened to read the copyright notice. I think that the publisher and this site.com should be more clear that that is what this is. As it stands it is not that clear that that is what this book is, which I thought was somewhat misleading on the publisher's part.
In any case though, I thought that the book was good. In spite of being rather short, Strobel put a lot of information into this little book. If you have already studied a lot of apologetics, you will probably find that you already know a lot of the information in this book, but you will probably find a lot of new information as well. Strobel addresses issues such as: - Do different Gospel accounts give contradictory accounts? Although I would have liked to have seen a little more on this point, he raises some very good points that resolve many of the alleged contradictions between the gospel accounts. He also makes the interesting point that, if all the gospels told the exact same things in exactly the same way, that that would actually be evidence AGAINST them, not for them, because people would then suspect the authors of collusion! - Did Jesus really die, or could He have survived the cross? - Was Jesus really buried in a tomb? (Some allege that He was not, and that His body was later eaten by wild animals, thus explaining the absence of His body. Strobel shows that that isn't really plausable). - Was Jesus really crucified in the manner that the Gospels claim He was? Strobel addresses numerous specific issues, such as did crucifixion really use nails like the Gospels said it did? - Did Jesus really rise from the dead? - Did Jesus really appear to people after He rose from the dead? He addresses specific issues and objections here as well, such as, were Jesus' appearances simply hallucinations? Did the Disciples steal the body? Was there really a guard at the Tomb, and were they really Roman soldiers?
In addition to provididing a solid defense of the Resurrection, Strobel makes several interesting points about the Gospel accounts themselves that I had not noticed before reading this book. For example, I had missed the significance of the fact that women were the first to see the empty Tomb before Strobel comments on that. Specifically, the testimony of women was considered practically worthless at that time, and women were not even allowed to testify in legal courts. Not only would the authors have no incentive to put this detail in if the account was not true, they almost certainly would have left it out if it didn't actually occur. If anything, this detail would have been highly embarassing for the Apostles!
I recommend reading this book, especially if you have not studied much apologetics. It will strengthen your own faith and help equip you to defend your faith. This book is also a good witnessing tool. It is short enough that you can read it fairly quickly and then lend it to non-Christian friends to read (which is what I will probably end up doing with my copy now that I finished reading it). I also recommend this book strongly if you are considering becoming a Christian, or are a Christian who is struggling in your faith.
Yet another solid work from Strobel... Apr 3, 2006
Lee Strobel has his approach down pat. Having now written a half-dozen books with this same format, you can read any of his "The Case for ..." books and know exactly what to expect. In fact, I think that "The Case for Easter" is essentially some excerpts from "The Case for Christ," with a few specific modifications to allow it to stand alone.
Strobel starts the book from the perspective of an atheist, where he was some twenty years ago. He then brings us into the analytical process that he used to critique the Christian faith, his first response to his wife's conversion to Christianity. He was hoping to discredit his wife's newfound beliefs and pull her back from this "cult," but over the process of interviewing some experts, he became convinced that the claims of the Bible are indeed true.
In "The Case for Easter," Strobel interviews a handful of intellectual giants about several of the primary objections to the Easter story. He describes their responses, as well as his reactions to their points. Though his receptiveness to their answers seems a bit too easy, he does profound some quality apologetic refutations in response to several fundamental reasons why many folks cannot rationally believe in the death, resurrection, and appearances of Christ as described in the biblical account.
This book could actually be better described as a booklet, and it can easily be read in one sitting. Though I think his approach would be a bit more authentic if he interviewed non-Christians as well as Christians, Strobel is to be commended for providing this thoughtful analysis of how he, a cynical atheist, ultimately came to be a follower of Christ. Christians who read this book can be affirmed that they do not believe in something that is utterly senseless. And non-Christians would be well-served to consider these explanations to suggest that to be a Christian is not to commit intellectual fraud but can be well-supported in very rational terms.
